Little Gelli Barn

about the property

Rural retreat for two, nestled within the mountains and hills of the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales

This adorable architect designed barn is set in a private corner of the grounds of the main farmhouse. The cottage is bright and contemporary, within its own private garden. It overlooks a stream and is located at the end of a breathtaking valley in the very heart of the Snowdonia National Park.

There is access to 690 acres of private land, surrounded by woodland, streams, waterfalls and wildlife - making this the perfect destination for romatic retreats, long weekends, holidays away from the hustle and bustle of every day life (though still close to the coast and market towns of Machynlleth and Dolgellau.)

You really have to visit to truly appreciate the surrounding beauty and peace of this place.

Litlle Gelli barn is simply furnished with lovely views over looking the vally it has a private garden and patio for alfresco dining - it is much loved by writers, musicians and painters who return regularly for its  atmosphere, and until now it has been a well kept secret!

A recent award was presented to the owners for the 'Sensitive Conservation of Old buildings' by the Campaign for the Preservation of Rural Wales.​

  • Plenty of designated parking in the yard to the side of the house
  • Little Gelli Barn and Little Gelli house are part of a traditional rural homestead, and are therefore fairly closely positioned, however each has its own more private area, and there is a stunning and generous landscape to explore in the immediate surroundings. 

    We welcome dogs, however these need to be well behaved, and extreme care must be taken regarding sheep and local wildlife, as the farmers livelihoods depend on it. Please note that the garden between Little Gelli house and Little Gelli Barn are not fully separated by a fence, and both extend into the nature around.

customer reviews for Little Gelli Barn

Little Gelli Barn is a beautiful spot and the barn feels light and contemporary. It is very remote and the nearest mobile phone signal is at least a couple of miles drive away. We really felt that we had got away from everything and, in spite of fairly constant rainfall (in July!) we absolutely loved evenings in reading our books and listening to classical music (suggest you take your own CDs with you as the selection is very limited). There is no wifi or television which we loved but may not suit all. Dogellau is a lovely little town with food shops, a lovely wine bar and coffee shop and we went to Barmouth too which is beautiful. Lots of walks - our labrador absolutely loved it and I liked having a dog there owing to the remoteness of the property, it was rather spooky late one night when a lost walker hammered on the window.
